I filled in for another pilot the other day, Frank Toews came down sick, so I got to fly the RVA kids (RVA is AIM’s boarding school, elementary and high school) out to Daba, along with their Parents (the Scheenstra family).  A good flight.  Also. woo-hooo! I got to file IFR to get out of Nairobi, and to get back in. Yay!  No more dodging clouds!  I passed my IFR checkride with Capt Nguma on Thursday.

Anyway…the flight was routine.  Daba is about 125 nm east of Nairobi.  It was interesting, when we landed, to listen to the kids greet the locals, in the local language.  Humbling too. We’re still struggling away with swahili, and these three kids were rattling off the local language just as well as the locals (I forget the name of the tribe…Orma, I think, but I’m not sure).  I stayed for a cup of tea, and talked with the missionaries and the local wazee (old men) for a bit, then flew back.
